What type of plant is this?

Can anyone identify this plant for me please? I am new to gardening and I grew this from a pack of mixed herb seeds, the packet did not say what the individual herbs were. The leaves do not smell of anything

    My guess would be Common Broom Eileen but that is just a guess  :)

    Something in the pea family for sure, but there's a lot of them so it's wait and see :)

    Hey, if that’s from a herb mix I’d say it’s fenugreek (also known as methi). It’s used widely in Indian cooking - I’m actually growing some for the first time this year. There’s no obvious scent but it’s got a wonderful earthy flavour, especially when used dried. It’s also used as a green manure. Hope that helps :)

    I have googled fenugreek and it is this one. Thanks for your help

    I grow fenugreek and these leaves look almost the same.

    I love methi but have never tasted it fresh. Is it different?
    In London. Keen but lazy.
